7 million Vietnamese households experienced income decrease due to the Covid-19
According to Dr. Jacpues Morisset, World Bank Lead Economist and Program Leader for Vietnam, Vietnam is among the few countries with positive growth in the context of global struggles to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, the pandemic still has a great impact on people's lives and the economic activities of enterprises. According to a survey by the World Bank, Vietnam has over 7 million households with reduced income in July and August compared to June and July. Of which, about 0.5 million households have 50% or higher percentage of their income reduced.
According to Dr. Jacpues Morisset, if viewed from a positive perspective, the Covid-19 pandemic creates new opportunities for Vietnam, such as accelerating the movement of a number of multinational companies branches from other countries to Vietnam.
Vietnam's outstanding achievement in Covid-19 epidemic prevention and control is the most powerful push for multinational companies to bring some of their operations to Vietnam especially as their factories are closed in other countries.
